First National Bank in collaboration with WesBank have just added ‘nav» Car’ to the FNB smartphone application. This new feature will allow customers to get licence renewal reminders and to order, pay and have the licence delivered.
“By simply scanning your licence disc you can request proactive notifications (once loaded reminders happen automatically, no need to request), plus easy renewal, in-app payment and delivery options to your door. With a few clicks or swipes, customers can avoid a host of frustrating and time-consuming processes as well as prevent penalties for late payment. In addition, with the functionality you can renew on behalf of a dependent who lives elsewhere, and have it delivered to them,” states the FNB press release.
This service does come at a cost of R199 however, which is over and above the price of renewing your licence.
In addition, for R95 per month, FNB allows customers to buy the first bundle feature called ‘On-road Protect’. This service provides vehicle licence renewal for up to 5 discs with free delivery, fine discounts negotiated on your behalf, 24/7 bail assistance at roadblocks and lastly Road Accident Fund (RAF) claim and tyre repair claim assistance due to pothole damage.
